SMOOTHIES



Hi all, now that it is nearly spring, sun is shining ( well sometimes!! ) and  the daffodils are popping their heads out, I am into healthy eating more than usual these days. It is good to look forward to the summer, to enjoy the sun and enjoy those wonderful fruit and vegetables in the coming months. I can hardly wait. 
Below I made two types of smoothies today. One with oats in for breakfast and a fruity one to enjoy later in the day. I hope you enjoy them  too.

BLACK  BERRIES, OATS WITH HONEY

2 tbsp of oats
3  tbsp black berries
1 banana
3 tbsp yogurt
3 tbsp milk
1 tbsp runny honey
extra blackberries for serving.

Add all the ingredients into blender and whizz until smooth.  Add some more milk if needed. Serve with blackberries.

PINEAPPLE, APPLE, ORANGE AND MAPLE SYRUP

3 tbsp chopped pineapple
1 apple
1 orange
1 small banana
3 tbsp apple juice
3 tbsp orange juice
1 tbsp maple syrup
pecan or walnuts to serve.

Cut the pineapple and apple into wedges. Peel the orange and chop. Diced the banana. Add all the fruit into blender  together with apple juice, orange juice and maple syrup. Whizz until smooth. Add little more juice if you need to. Serve with pecan nuts.
Both of the smoothies serves 1.
